#### Explanation:

If we collect the terms in x on the left side of the equation and numeric values on the right side.

subtract 6x from both sides.

#3x-6x-3=cancel(6x)cancel(-6x)+1#

#rArr-3x-3=1# add 3 to both sides.

#-3xcancel(-3)cancel(+3)=1+3#

#rArr-3x=4# To solve for x, divide both sides by - 3

#(cancel(-3) x)/cancel(-3)=4/(-3)#

#rArrx=-4/3" is the solution"#
